Happening this week! Harvestfest celebrations, free trees, a walking tour and community building TED talks

Lots to enjoy in the hood this week! From our Harvestfest party on Thursday with Tree For Me pick-up to Saturday’s walking tour and TED like talks “Yes, in my community!”.

Harvestfest 10th anniversary party!

We’re throwing a party and you’re invited! Our amazing Harvestfest 10th anniversary party is happening this Thursday at East Lynn Park. Come down and groove to the live music: Dan the Music Man 4:15-5:00pm and Tim Bovaconti and The Enablers 5:30-7:30pm.  And surprise! We have beer, wine, cider and fresh juice available to wash down your farm-fresh goodies. For the kids, we have a hoop zone with Hoopersonic from 3:30-5:30pm, art activities with Fresh Paint from 4:30-6:30pm, Yoga Storytime with Appleseed Yoga at 5:30pm, and face painting from 4:00-6:30pm.

Anyone who ordered a tree from Tree For Me will be able to pick it up in the wading pool. (If you didn’t order one, a limited number may be available for walk-ups.)

At 7:30pm our Harvestfest after-party begins with a reprise of last year’s Tragically Hip singalong in the park. You may want to bring a chair/blanket, instrument and candle along. Come raise your voices with some neighbours – we love singing together.
